Book Description

January 1, 1993 0070448442 978-0070448445 5 Sub
A revised edition of a text on unit operations of chemical engineering, this work contains updated and new material reflecting in part the broadening of the chemical engineering profession into new areas such as food processing, electronics and biochemical applications. As in previous editions, separate chapters are devoted to each of the four principle unit operations - fluid mechanics, heat transfer, equilibrium stages and mass transfer, and operations involving particulate solids - and includes coverage of adsorption, absorption and membrane separation. There is also detailed treatment of solids-handling operations and solid-liquid separations. In this fifth edition, SI units are given greater emphasis and some two-third of the end-of-chapter problems have been revised. In addition, there is new material on membrane separations, flow measurement, dispersion operations, supercritical extraction, pressure-swing adsorption and sedimentation. Also available is a solutions manual (0-07-044845-0).

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for students yet too general for professionals April 29, 1999
Format:Hardcover
I work in the chemical operations sector. I will highly recommend this book for 3rd or 4rth year future chemical engineers. It contains viable information on many units that they will just have to know about. However, I will not recommend it for working operation engineers. It is too general for us, it doesn't problem shoot units such as pumps and compressors. I don't think that I have much use for this book, specially that I own the Perry's Handbook.

3.0 out of 5 stars This book is an annotated index to Perry's March 15, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
Warning: This is not a textbook. Basically, they took out some of the stuff from Perry's and rewrote it more carefully and filled in some of the details. In general, this book is hard to read, missing important things, and burdened with unimportant things. It really does no justice to the quality and quantity of amazing insight inside the head of Peter Harriott (from whom I've taken classes). I can't deny that it makes an awesome reference book, but woe to any class that depends on this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars best seller February 13, 1997
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
This book is userfriendly. I bought this in 1982. Still, I use this book when I need any information about unit operations of chemical engineering (fluid flow, heat transfer, mass transfer). Sometimes, I use this book like dictionary. I mean that I carry this book where I go
